Evidence Bush War on Terror politically motivated

This is easily the biggest news revelation of the year, but cable anchors are laughing it off. US News and World Report reports on a new book by former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge:
(Tom Ridge) was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush's re-election, something he saw as politically motivated and worth resigning over.
Does anyone believe this was an isolated incident? If so, I would like to offer that person a good deal on some rare Thai gems.

To me, this revelation is tantamount to proof that Bush cynics were right. And it shows that we were right to be disgusted by an establishment American news media that consistently failed to question key assumptions behind the Global War on Terror.

In a true democracy, this kind of revelation by a high level cabinet minister would be political dynamite. But in "let bygones be bygones" Obamerica, it's anyone's guess what the fallout will be.

  1. It is upsetting because terror alerts scare the public. This should have never been used to promote a political agenda.
